International Day of Peace 2021

Raising Peace Festival

You're invited to join ‘Raising Peace’, a festival of over 30 organisations devoted to the pursuit of PEACE.

The Raising Peace Festival will be held online from 16 - 26 September 2021 as part of the world-wide observance of the International Day of Peace on September 21. 

Some 30 events will be featured at the Festival. Raising Peace will explore the significance peace has to First Nations people, women, youth, refugees, and the environment. It will look at the different ways we define and understand peace, from the absence of war to peacekeeping, peacebuilding, and peace-making. It will equip participants with inspiration and ideas to make their own contribution to peace.
